When the Google Search Appliance (GSA) was dropped from the market, thousands of companies were left stranded and scrambling to find a replacement. Lucidworks Fusion provides essential functionality with advanced controls for better relevancy and signal processing for a richer search experience — all at a more affordable price point.

Easy to Setup and Configure

Just like GSA, Fusion is fast to setup and deploy, so you can get started indexing and ingesting data quickly and processing queries.

No More Silos

GSA indexed all your data (and charged per doc). Fusion ships with 50 enterprise connectors, giving end users access to all of an organization’s data and documents including SharePoint, MS Office, databases, Salesforce, Google Drive, Box.com, and many more.

Lower TCO and Higher Performance

Licensing for GSA was priced by the number of documents in your collections. Let’s face it: You don’t want to make that mistake again. Fusion is priced to scale to billions of documents while containing costs, reducing your overall hardware footprint, and conserving headcount.

Signal Processing for a Superior Experience

GSA does not learn from user behavior and integrate these and other signals into search results. Every user sees the same results regardless of who they are and what they’ve searched and clicked on in the past. Fusion’s signal processing continually improves relevancy by integrating feedback from user behavior, subject matter experts, and other sources.

Transparent Relevancy for Better Results

GSA was a black box (well, actually a yellow box). You had to trust that Google’s one-size-fits-all algorithms were good enough for your company’s unique mix of data and documents. Fusion puts relevancy in the control of the application owner with a rich UI for the tuning of results and business rules.

From Simple Search to a Unified Data Platform

GSA was fine when you just needed some basic search functionality for different teams or business units. But your organization needs more. Lucidworks Fusion gives you a scalable, robust, flexible platform for building search and data apps to meet the needs of all of your internal customers.

“Fusion gave us the features we needed to replace Google Search Appliance in a matter of weeks. With Fusion’s out-of-the-box capabilities, we skipped months in our dev cycle so we could focus our team where they would have the most impact. We cut our licensing costs by half and improved application usability. The Lucidworks professional services team amplified our success even further. We’re all Fusion from here on out!”
— Lourduraju Pamishetty, Senior IT Application Architect, Infoblox

Customizable User Interface

GSA gave you a very Google-like interface. Fusion ships with our App Studio, a modular library of UI components, to create polished prototypes in hours, not weeks.
